Reward for information into unsolved disappearance of NSW teenagers

Police are offering a $1 million reward for information into the unsolved disappearances and suspected murder of two teenagers near the New South Wales Central Coast over four decades ago.

Robyn Hickie, aged 18, and Amanda Robinson, aged 14, disappeared two weeks apart in 1979 in the Lake Macquarie region of NSW.

Ms Hickie left her home around 7.15pm on Saturday April 1 1979, and was last seen standing at a bus stop on the Pacific Highway, Belmont North.

A fortnight later, Ms Robinson was spotted walking along Lake Road in Swansea, on a Saturday night, after attending a dance at her high school in Gateshead.

Despite extensive investigations at the time, and over the years, neither of the girls have been located.

A Coronial Inquest into their disappearances found that the teenagers were deceased, most likely as a result of foul play.

No one has been arrested over either disappearance.

"Even though the two girls when missing two weeks apart, police are treating them as a single investigation," NSW Police Minister David Elliot said.

Mr Elliot said he police would "leave no stone unturned".

"The dissemblance of two teenager girls is a tragedy."

As investigations continue, police are renewing their appeal to the community to come forward with any information that may assist detectives with their inquiries.
